I checked in at EarthStar this week for an impromptu photoshoot. The community had gathered for one of many classes offered by Barbara Lane. People were busy in various stages of unique work. Barbara Lane sets a great tone in her studio where everyone is working separately…together. I skulked about snapping photos and admiring everyone’s efforts.
